Well,we're down to 4 teams, and my only reason for giving a damn is that the Western conf team,whoever it is, but hoping it's the Spurs because they deserve it the most, prevails in the Finals.
Woody got his extension. Good company man, won't make waves, likeable enough, but pretty clearly not leading us to a championship type coach. Clearly, it's all Melo all the time again at MSG. Blah.
Then, this morning, I stumbled on this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8iWWFk6TX18 and watched the whole clip with a big smile on my face.
It brought back a wonderful, happy, best 2 weeks of Knicks fandom since the Ewing years and I thought, "Man, I want that team, that time, back." Look how many smiles and how much joy was being expressed by the players, the fans, the celebs. People jumping up and down in their living rooms watching at home. MSG was the mecca of basketball again on that memorable night.
I remember thinking back then, that once Melo came back, all this was gonna end. It didn't matter how much Melo talked about fitting in and making it all work. I just KNEW it would end once he came back. Melo was NEVER going to defer to Lin, and never will. Lin would be forced to defer to Melo and sure enough, Lin never showed the same brilliance post-Melo's return.
Re-sign Lin you say? Won't matter, won't be the same. Where do we go from here? My gut says, no where special with Melo-iso ball. But damn, for those 2 weeks of Linsanity ...
